Falam Prayer for religious freedom in Chin State
06 February 2015 — The Falam Mino Pawlkawm (Falam Youth Fellowship) organized a prayer service for freedom of religion and protection of the land in Falam on Monday.
More than 50 Christians from different churches, including women and pastors, gathered on Moriah Prayer Mountain and prayed for two hours between 7am to 9am.
A youth leader in Falam said in the Chinland Post that it was the first time they had organized an activity regarding religious freedom following their meeting on 30 January.
He also said that they would continue their programmes in the future.
“It is now vital that we stand united in an effort to end religious repression and discrimination in Chin State,” a Falam community leader, who asked not to be named, said.
The leader also indicated that they would like to know information about how the Buddhist pagodas were built, clearly without consultation with the public, at the exit and entrance of the town by the military authorities.#
